Beat the Streak Report: Tuesday, August 3
It was a stagnant BTS Nation once again on Monday, as a jaw-dropping 23.5
percent of Streakers put on their floaties and treaded water for the
day thanks to an 0-for-0 performance from Joey Votto, who was withheld
from the lineup due to a sprained wrist.
Of course, the only thing worse than pressing the pause button on your
streak is pressing the reset button. Apparently, Robinson Cano did not
get this memo, as the Yankees second baseman went 0-for-3 to wipe away
the streaks of 12.3 percent of our users all by his lonesome self.
For those keeping track at home, that’s over 35 percent of Streakland who did not pass “Go”, or collect $200.
Let’s hope Tuesday is a little better.
Time for Tuesday’s Picks:
Oh, hello there …

Monday’s leaderboard … leader, “bigdadddy” was one of Cano’s many victims.
This means that we have a pu pu platter of 27-gamers atop our new
leaderboard, as “gfc2112”, “nycgreg” and “randy.zimmer” are the
temporary rulers of the universe.
If they weren’t so greedy they’d just combine their streaks together for
an 81-game streak and just split the $3,000,00 three ways.
